As infants become mobile, they begin to explore and need safe areas to explore, play, and learn. At North American Montessori Child Care, Inc., we understand this transitionary period between younger infants and infants transitioning into a new stage of development comes with new needs and concerns. Our caring staff provides the care that infants that are becoming mobile need to learn and thrive. Visit our three area schools to learn more:
The Transition Room Experience
Infants typically become mobile around 8 months of age, either through rolling or crawling. Every baby is different, and having a safe environment to develop at their own pace is important for their growth.
Every transition room at our schools has two teachers to provide guidance to mobile infants as they learn. Exploration is an important component of development, and our team of patient and understanding teachers provides this kind of care in a nurturing environment.
Frequent and positive interactions are at the heart of what we provide at North American Montessori Child Care, Inc. The experience is intended to be positive for children no matter their age, and we encourage parents to take a tour of our facilities to determine if they are right for their family.
If you have questions about our transition rooms, please contact us to sign up for a tour with our staff at one of our facilities.
